FGVienna: The 8th conference on Formal Grammar
Collocated with the
European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
Vienna, Austria, 16-17 August 2003
Second Call for Papers
FGVienna is the 8th conference on Formal Grammar held in conjunction
with the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information,
which takes place in 2003 in Vienna. Previous meetings were held in
Barcelona (1995), Prague (1996), Aix-en-Provence (1997), Saarbruecken
(1998), Utrecht (1999, Helsinki (2001) and Trento (2002).
Aims and Scope
FGVienna provides a forum for the presentation of new and original
research on formal grammar, with particular regard to the application of
formal methods to natural language analysis.
Themes of interest include, but are not limited to,
* formal and computational phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics
* model-theoretic and proof-theoretic methods in linguistics;
* constraint-based and resource-sensitive approaches to grammar;
* learnability of formal grammar;
* integration of stochastic and symbolic models of grammar;
* foundational, methodological and architectural issues in grammar.
Previous conferences in this series have welcomed papers from a wide
variety of frameworks.
We are pleased to announce two invited talks by distinguished
* Walter Daelemans, University of Antwerp and Tilburg University
* Geoffrey K. Pullum, University of California, Santa Cruz
We invite *e-mail* submissions of 30-minute papers (including questions,
comments, and discussion). A submission should consist of two parts:
1. an information sheet (in plain text), containing:
* the name of the author(s),
* e-mail and postal address(es).
2. an *anonymous* paper, consisting of a description of not more than
8 pages, including figures and references. Papers should be sent
as email attachments in plain text (ASCII), PostScript or PDF.
Preparation of the manuscript in LaTeX is highly recommended.
Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (Shuly Wintner).
A full version of each accepted paper will be included in the conference
proceedings, to be distributed at the conference. Revised versions will
also be made available after the conference as CSLI Publications Online
